Here's a link to the pattern
I've done the ribbing but am stuck on starting the heel flap. I don't understand how to purl across on the WS since the working yarn is on the left side of the 12 stitches (needle #1). Should I knit across those 12 stitches first, then turn the work and purl across for the first heel flap row?
Also, when I slip that first stitch, I assume it should be purl-wise?
Maybe this is common sock-knitting knowledge?? I've never made socks before!
Thanks for any help--I'm trying to get these done QUICKLY for a friend's new baby.
